Jamie O'Hara issues fiery dig at Leeds United after clash v Tottenham

TalkSport pundit Jamie O’Hara issued a fiery dig at Leeds United after their 4-3 loss against Tottenham on Saturday 12 November.

The Whites’ defensive issues were on full display yet again and despite taking the lead three times in the fixture, they suffered a damning defeat before the World Cup break.

O’Hara blasted the “shocking” Leeds United defence claiming that Tottenham wouldn’t have won against a top-six team on the day.

“You go 1-0 down, 2-0 down against these [big-six] sides, you aren’t coming back,” he said speaking to TalkSPORT.

 “It’s alright against Leeds, who are shocking at the back.”

The truth hurts.

You hate to admit it but O’Hara is completely right here, the Leeds United defence is shocking at the moment and the downfall of Marsch’s men time and time again.

January is the perfect opportunity to spruce things up at the back for the Whites, bringing in some new personnel better suited to Marsch’s pressing machine.

A new left-back must be top of the wish list, this would allow Pascal Struijk to move back into his favoured centre-back role rather than filling in as full-back.

That’s not to say his move back will change things for Leeds but it will make things a lot more steady than they have been in recent weeks.

This may be Victor Orta and Andrea Radrizzani’s last transfer window at the club, hopefully, they can go out with a bang and sign some solid talents.

A left-back and centre-forward have to be the priorities but anyone who can come in and make Leeds’ woeful defence better will be welcomed with open arms.

In other Leeds United news, the club have now put up a first-team player on sale as they expect top EFL sides to make a move for him in January.
